Aparajito, February 25

If you want to explore the aesthetics and history of film, this is the place to start. PFA and the UC Berkeley Film Studies Program co-present the film-lecture course Film 50, now in its seventeenth year. An undergraduate course designed for non–film majors, Film 50 is open to the public as space permits. Students learn to view film as a complex picture language and to understand how it articulates narrative, psychological, social, and ideological themes. This year’s course, taught by Marilyn Fabe, has a special focus on cinematic depictions of childhood.

Special admission prices apply: General admission, $11.50; BAM/PFA members, $7.50; UC Berkeley students, $5.50; Seniors, disabled persons, UC Berkeley faculty and staff, non–UC Berkeley students, and youth 17 and under, $8.50. Programs often sell out, so we recommend advance tickets, which are available in person at the PFA box office and BAM admissions desk, online at bampfa.berkeley.edu, or by calling (510) 642-5249.
